Liposuction Isn’t a Shortcut–It’s a Motivator
It’s only been a couple of months since New Year’s Day and, if you’re like many people, the commitment to keeping resolutions may be starting to fade. Exercising and leading a healthier lifestyle typically tops the to-do lists for most people, and most people need the motivation to maintain those changes. It may come as a surprise, but liposuction can be the motivation you need.
Liposuction is the ideal treatment for women and men who have already shed several pounds or who are near their target weight but have trouble spots where fat persists and creates unwanted bulges. Liposuction isn’t a weight-loss procedure itself. Instead, it contours areas of the body by removing fatty tissue. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, liposuction can help you be confident in your appearance. People gain weight when their individual fat cells increase in size rather than because they gain new fat cells, which means that removing fat cells during liposuction creates permanent results. What used to be a problem area becomes balanced with the rest of the body and is no longer an area to be concealed.
Are You a Good Liposuction Candidate?
If you’ve already embarked on a weight-loss path and have made changes to your eating habits and activity levels, you may be ready to pursue liposuction. You can benefit from liposuction if you are:
- Within 30% of your ideal weight and have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
- In good overall health without a life-threatening illness or a medical condition that can impair healing
- Outlook is positive, and you have specific goals in mind for body contouring
- Realistic about the results liposuction can produce
As you can see, good liposuction candidates can be either in the midst of their weight-loss journeys or have reached their goal weights. In either case, liposuction can also function as a motivating factor.
Keeping Your Resolution
Whether you made the resolution to get in better shape when the calendar turned to a new year or spring became summer, having something that helps keep you on track can be the key to making changes that last for years instead of a few months.
Many people consider liposuction as an investment in those changes. By sticking to a reasonable exercise plan and eating a healthy diet, you can realize the rewards of that investment. Additionally, seeing the results produced by liposuction typically spurs people to want to maintain and even improve on the new shape they see in the mirror.
